Public House Bitter is an ode to British ale brewing (and consuming) tradition. The term "Bitter" dates from a time when most English breweries produced two basic types of everyday ale ? a Mild and a Bitter. Whereas a ’Mild’ is a relatively sweet beer, a "Bitter" denotes a drier brew, although not necessarily bitter in flavor. The dryness, or bitterness, derives from the emphasis on hops in the flavor profile.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 No head. Light amber/copper color. Absolutely heavenly, heavenly soft hoppy nose. I experienced England in a glass at a Japanese pub made by an American. But wait I am wrong, Glacier hops are used. Light body. Hops seems to hitevery last part of the mouth. Oranges and cotton candy are balanced with excellent malt buscuitiness. Bone dry, lightly bitter fruity finish. Out of this world and IMO on the verge of being one of the best in the world, if it were not just a bit too perfumy. Still a top one or two bitters I have ever had.
